The feds have hosed everyone and this is what it comes down to.
no pard , not one phone call , Iv gotten a few calls from a few of the other local Guides wanting to know if my unorthodox approach at booking early spring fishing trips was working , LOL
had one of the Captains from one of the local party boats call and volunteer to deck the trip just so he could watch .
even had one Game Warden ask me if i had made my grand yet , i just smiled and asked him if was interested in the bet ,,,,for the purpose of keeping this board G rated , i cant repeat here what he said ... never can tell who reads here
our state waters are 60 ft at the deepest were coming off of a record cold winter and the surface temp is currently about 56 degrees , its tough to even loose a bait to a snapper right now. I put new power on my Contender about two weeks ago and needed to put some hrs on them , so a couple friends and I made some rounds just checked a lot of popular stuff like east and middle bank , , the Jr Lump ,checked several lesser known spots , even one i gave Tom for his newest atlas we named Cowboys rock , and one old wreck that still marks a little bottom change down toward Matagorda , the water is ugly and cold and snapper fishing is a joke at the moment.
im done with it.
Bring on the sunny days and spring break , its a great time for B-Liners , Grouper and Amberjack
